Hair we go loopty loo!

If you cannot tell I am OBSESSED with these curls. Well the boys' curls too, but they don't let me take pictures of them ;) This was my first attempt at yarn extensions. They are holding great in Sadie's hair. They improved Emery's hold too, but she just doesn't hold a style as well as Sadie. I think it's that she doesn't keep her sleep cap on plus spends more time on her head! She also seems to be more sensitive to the pull of a style. I don't twist tightly, in fact its kinda hard to get a twist as tight as a cornrow, but she still got bumps at her hairline after 2 days.

Please excuse Emery's messy face. Evidently she ate the playdough I thought she was playing with! Doesn't it look cute though? Her first single ponytail! She looks so much older too. And as if I needed one more reminder that my baby is not a baby anymore...she slept in a big girl bed two nights ago. We decided to move her back to the crib because there is just no way she is big enough for a bed....right? I mean yes, all 3 of her older sibs moved by now. But she just looks so tiny! Ugh...

Molly - Emery is getting SO big!!! Love their hair. Speaking of, was just talking to my boss (she's black) about how she spent 1.5 hours doing her daughter's hair last night. She uses a product called Miss Jessie's and highly recommends it. Just thought I'd pass it along to you, but you probably already know about it! She said it's available at Target, but online they do BOGO deals that are better. Hugs! Krista

Hi Molly!
I want to share our solution to Zinash's "bumps at the hairline" problem. She gets bumps on all of her styled lines or "parts" and randomly when we leave ANY style in for too long.

I start with a small rubbermaid tub; in it, I mix a 1/2 cup of (cheap) Coconut Oil with a few drops of Tea Tree Oil. That's it. I dip my fingers in and drag them through the lines/parts and around her hairline -- NO MORE BUMPS. Just an idea. You may already be using something, but your comment about the bumps caught my eye. Love and hugs from the Brooks!!

Hey Molly,

I am sorry that you are catching it from complete strangers. I like your spirit.
Did you ever find the place that I emailed you about. We lost touch and we have not talked via email since shortly after you relocated. Let me know if I can be any help. I am here....

Hugs to you!
